Luangwa River Camp

Luangwa River Camp is a stylish safari lodge situated in a game management area directly across from the Mfuwe section of South Luangwa National Park. The camp is set under shady trees along the Luangwa River bank, slightly back from the river itself.

Although Luangwa River Camp is not in the national park it can be accessed directly from the lodge via a quick boat or vehicle trip across the river.

The camp has 5 spacious thatch and brick chalets, sleeping a maximum of 10 guests. The communal areas (bar, dining and reading areas) are very open plan with a two-level sunken infinity pool looking across the large lawn area that leads to the river bank.

Activities at Luangwa River Camp are not scheduled. Guests have the choice of day and night game drives, guided walks, game viewing and bird watching from the elephant hide, cultural village visits or boat trips during the wet season.

Why We Like Luangwa River Camp

Every day at Luangwa River Camp begins around the campfire, right on the banks of the river. As the sun rises, it glints off the ever-changing sandbanks that split the river in front of you. On some mornings, you can see herds of elephants crossing the water, having spent their night in and around the camp.
